Any 3-step beauty regime always starts with cleansing to remove dirt and make-up on the surface of the skin. Cleansers also work to balance your skin’s pH and prepare the dermis for the products in the following steps. Now there’s a bevvy of milks, balms and powders that are promising to give your skin a more intense cleanse. Choose your pick.


A powder that can go from dry and abrasive to foamy and rich when you add water? Yes! Why? Powders gently exfoliate your skin as they cleanse, pack a puch with super ingredients and are easy to travel with.


A cleansing balm is amazing when winter creeps in and the weather dries your skin. It gets harder to keep your skin hydrated so it’s important to use a non-drying cleanser.


Milk cleansers are made from a natural emulsion of fats and water. It cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils – keeping it balanced. This type of cleanser is great for normal to combination skin that’s easily irritated.
